The Rise and Fall of...Andrew Lynch

Name: Andrew Lynch

Hometown: Minneapolis

Education: Beloit College, and the School of Life!

Favorite Credits: Lloyd in "The Disappearing Man" by Jahn Sood, and all things 3 Sticks including; "Vestige," "Paper Plane," and "Le Gourmand or GLUTTONY!"    

Tell us about Bread Arts Collective: Bread is people I love, and that's the secret.    

Tell us about Rise and Fall: Rise and Fall is so fast and fun that you hardly notice the medicine.  But it's in there alright.

Why Rise and Fall now?: Because the rent is too damn high, etc.

What is it like to be a part of Rise and Fall and Bread Arts Collective?: It's like I'm wandering around a dark, desolate wasteland with only a modest torch in my hand.  And I'm all, why am I even holding this modest torch?  In a dark, desolate wasteland of all places?  That's ridiculous.  But then I see like ten other people all wandering around the dark, desolate wasteland holding modest torches in their hands too.  Now we all do it together, and we burn a little brighter.      

Why should we come see Rise and Fall?: I was fortunate to see this show before I was in it, and it's one of my favorite shows.  Some theatre feels like a lazy ride on a merry-go-round, and you're all yawning and shit.  This ain't that.  This is a tight rope, death defying, roller coaster to hell kind of show.  Are you not entertained?
